Silence of the Moon
By S.A. Pavlik
Secrets of the Moon, Book 2
A werewolf in mourning.
Channing has been through enough trauma to bring any ordinary person to
their knees, but recent events might be the final straw that breaks
him. Especially when he discovers he’s lost not just the only constant
in his life, but something far greater. Meanwhile, a sinister plot is
brewing that threatens not only him, but the entire preternatural world.
But he isn’t alone. Can the man he may be ready to love help him pick
up the pieces in time?
A homicide detective with more questions than answers.
Damien O’Connor of the Columbus Police Department has seen things his
colleagues could only imagine. He’s directly responsible for the loss
that sends his werewolf lover hurtling towards the breaking point. While
the man he’s come to love is suffering, a new case lands in his lap
that leaves him questioning everything and losing more than he’d
bargained for. But sometimes moving forward means stepping back and
letting others shoulder the burden for a while. Can he and his team
solve the case before he finds himself without a home to return to?

“Help me forget, a rúnsearc.” Alec held Damien’s face between his hands and captured his lips in another deep kiss. “Overwhelm me with your scent so there’s nothing else but the two of us here in this room.”
Damien groaned, Alec’s words replacing the need to comfort with something else. Something better. Damien could do that. It’d be no hardship.
Kissing his way along Alec’s face to his neck, Damien was careful to stay lifted off the other man’s body. Determination to wipe every last trace of sadness out of Alec’s eyes spurred him on. Alec shivered with a low moan as Damien latched onto the sensitive spot behind his ear, sucking up a bruise there.
He chuckled. “That’s it, sweetheart. I’ve got you.”
Alec growled and tugged at Damien for another kiss, which he happily gave him before sliding lower and capturing a nipple between his teeth. He hadn’t dared explore like this before, but they’d had such success with everything they’d done so far … maybe they could test the boundaries a bit.
“Okay?” he asked, checking in.
The answering moan told him everything he needed to know. Damien kissed across Alec’s chest to his other nipple. Alec twisted his fingers in Damien’s hair, encouraging him to stay longer. That worked for him. He curled his lips into a devilish grin, sucking hard on the nub until Alec arched his back beautifully toward Damien’s mouth.
“Oh, gods, Damien. That feels so good. That—”
Alec cut off with a loud moan as Damien cupped Alec’s cock, now hard and leaking against his scarred abdomen. Damien pulled back to get a better view of Alec’s flushed cheeks and chest, admiring the bruises he’d sucked into Alec’s skin.
They probably wouldn’t last long, but he’d enjoy making more.
“I want to taste you,” Damien murmured, squeezing Alec’s cock to make it absolutely clear what he meant. “I haven’t had the chance yet. Is that something you’d like?”
Alec nodded his head quickly, accompanied by a soft, needy whimper.
But then he hesitated, biting his bottom lip. “I want you to but …”
Yeah. The constant threat of a panic attack lingered between them whenever they were like this in bed. But Damien had ideas for how to ease Alec’s concern.
Damien slid off the bed, kneeling on the floor. “Slide down here and drape your legs over my shoulders. Stop if you need to, and we’ll try something else.”
Alec could always fuck Damien’s face.
He gripped the base of his cock at that thought and groaned. If they didn’t get to that today, they needed to soon. Who would’ve known Damien would like the idea so much?
“The room just flooded with your arousal.” Alec huffed out a teasing laugh. Damien’s shoulders relaxed as levity replaced their earlier somber mood. “Whatever you were thinking about? I want that.”

Alec Channing has lived a long life, going through the motions, lost in his troubled past, until fellow shifters start dying around him. An increase in werewolf attacks only adds to Alec’s problems. As his past closes in, his only hope lies in one man—an unaware human whose vanilla and spice scent and easygoing attitude draw Alec in. However, what happens when that man uncovers the truth about Alec’s world?
A homicide detective out of his depth.
Detective Damien O’Connor joined the Columbus Police Department to bring closure to victims and their families—closure he never got for himself. But when none of the evidence adds up for what should be a routine death investigation, he’s floundering. As the bodies pile up, the sweet man who caught Damien’s eye falls in the center of the storm. When secrets come out, can Damien reconcile his new reality and solve the case?

About the Author:
S.A. Pavlik writes what she wants to read, but it doesn’t exist… yet. An avid reader, she first discovered and promptly devoured hundreds of M/M Romance novels in 2019 and it rekindled her desire to write. She started her debut novel, Death of the Moon, the very next year.
She was born and raised in Wisconsin where it’s too cold but she loves it there anyway. She lives with her husband and her furbaby—a needy, elderly, deaf cat named Rise (Ree-say). Because who uses names that are instantly pronounceable? When she isn’t reading or writing, she’s obsessively playing video games or proving that an introvert can be an extrovert on the internet after all.
